All joint protectors certified according to EN 1621-1:2012
In 2013 we modified all our joint protectors according to the new Standard EN 1621-1:2012 – and they passed the certification with success. With one single exception all SAS-TEC protectors achieved the higher protection level 2.
Since July 2013 the new Standard for joint protectors EN 1621-1:2012 is valid. The most important changes are: higher test temperature (23 instead of 20 degree) and test after hydolythic aeging. In addition the new standard offers two protection levels. At Level 1 the mean value must remain below 35 kN and no single strike above 50 kN. At Level 2 the mean value must remain below 20 kN and no single strike above 30 kN. All SAS-TEC joint protectors achieve the higher Level 2 – except the thinner version of the hip protector, SC-1/07 (Level 1).
